Remarkable Creatures by Tracey Chevalier

My church book group selected this book (And it featured Congregationalists - yay!) a few years ago.  Although, I never seem to make book group, I often read what they select and this story has stayed with me over the years. When I first read this, I consulted the internet to see the cliffs of Dorset, see actual "ichies" and "plessies" and tried to learn more about the real life women who inspired the novel - Mary Anning and Elizabeth Philpot.  I enjoyed it only slightly less this time around.

What did you think?
